Not a bad film which spurts off family values, how a kid can benefit from being in a well rounded house. You would think that such a film as this would have lots of camp moments.. But aside from a few scenes, actually is pretty well-informed about the topics it presents.

Subject: Families First? On What Planet?
The message delivered in this movie is 180 degrees from what's touted in today's "it takes a village" doctrine. If they (legislators) could outlaw the word "Lights" on a cigarette package, they could just as easily outlaw the viewing of this film. So watch it while ya can do so without the risk of being shipped off to a reindoctrination camp!

I wonder how many people have grown up in a house where the family went on a picnic with dad dressed in a Brooks Brothers suit, and tie. Is that a Brooklyn thing?
